Seasoned Egg, Buckwheat, Rice and Vegetable Nourish Bowl

Egg, Tofu and Buckwheat Nourish Bowl

I came across whole grain buckwheat groats a while back when I was searching for complex carbohydrate alternatives to rice and quinoa. I usually mix it with rice to give it extra bite. Buckwheat is gluten free and has high nutritional value. It is known as a pseudo grain that resembles a grain but biologically it is a seed. Today I was inspired to do some meal prepping with some tofu, vegetables and eggs. I miss those delicious, seasoned eggs you get at ramen restaurants, so I decided to make batch today for throughout the week. I boiled the eggs for 7 minutes because they looked a bit bigger but in hindsight 6 minutes would have been perfect. You would usually add sake to the egg marinade but I didn’t have any but it tastes good without it. A little bit of preparation work with all the chopping but super simple after that. It can all be stored for the next few days for quick lunches or dinners.
